Student Health Services

Outpatient medical care for the treatment of illnesses and minor injuries is provided for students by certified nurse practitioners at the Health Service Clinic in the Wellness and Recreation Center on west campus.  Students who have paid the health fee are eligible for services.  A valid Bobcat card must be presented to receive service at the clinic.  There may be additional costs involved if lab work is done that is sent out to a facility.  Insurance may be filed by the clinic.  Students may be referred to consultants if needed or if desired by the patient.  Students are referred to Oconee Regional Medical Center in the event of an emergency.

The clinic is open Monday through Friday, 8:15 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.  Other staff members include a board certified physician consultant, part-time pharmacist, administrative assistant, Licensed Practical Nurse, and a health educator.

Student Health Services promotes the Wellness Concept as an educational process and life-style for students.  Health education information, designed to have a positive influence on students' health, behavior, and mannered, is provided through the office.
